Wholesome Direct 2024: Australian Watch Times For Summer Game Fest’s Coziest Showcase

Summer Game Fest is home to a range of exciting game showcases, but perhaps one of the highlights each year is the Wholesome Direct. Hosted by Wholesome Games, the full-length June showcase will feature “a vibrant lineup of artistic, uplifting, and emotionally resonant games from developers of all sizes from around the world!”

The Wholesome Direct indie showcase celebrates “emotionally resonant” games that are comforting, optimistic, introspective, and joyful in equal measures, with previous years’ presentations including titles like Unpacking, Venba, and Terra Nil. If you’re a fan of cozy games, this is absolutely the Summer Game Fest event for you.

You’ll be able to tune in to the Wholesome Direct 2024 showcase on Twitch and YouTube.
